Full description

Formerly a much smaller 1960’s property, it was redesigned by a local award winning architect; being converted in the early 2010’s into the meticulously presented, modern, adaptable home it is today.

The house has rendered elevations under a slate roof and offers a good mix of contemporary and traditional finishes.

The ground floor also benefits from a larger than average, contemporay-styled cloakroom.

The spacious triple aspect dining room has solid oak flooring with double French doors opening onto a south-west facing decked area. Interior double doors link through to the equally spacious drawing room which is once again triple aspect, and looks out over a nature pond, with French doors to the garden:This room also benefits from a brand new 6Kw LPG stove.
